This brief essay, slated for publication in a regular column on “Teaching Health Law,” describes the author’s experience using the Michael Moore film, “Sicko,” in the classroom. Students were assigned to watch the film and discuss relevant legal rules and policy issues in health care financing, health care reform, and public health law. The “Teaching Health Law” column is intended to share pedagogical experiences and insights among health law professors. This article also provides a summary of the substantive health laws implicated by the film.
